Hey guys! I have currently an i5-3570 and I was just wondering if I should go to a 3570k or maybe higher, I mostly game a lot with internet surfing, not much video editing or modeling, although I do look to get started in video editing. thank you :D

The only advantage the K version gives you is the abililty to overclock. If Unless you've going to overclock and you've got money to burn, I would not bother getting it.

I'm new to overclocking, but I've had the 3570 for a few months and it never gets up 50% on my cpu meter (mostly on far cry 3 with optimal settings) I really don't think ill new the k, don't you?

If what you do is mostly gaming and simple daily tasks, I wouldn't waste money on a k version of the same chipset. Wait for the next generation CPU, Haswell (comes out in June), then get the i5-4xxxk CPU.
